"Military prosecutors presented new and detailed evidence Thursday that they said showed that Pfc. Bradley Manning collaborated with Julian Assange, the founder of the anti-secrecy Web site WikiLeaks, in stealing [sic] more than 700,000 documents from classified computer systems and publishing them on the Internet. ... Manning’s defense attorney, David E. Coombs, accused military prosecutors of 'over-charging' in the case in an effort to obtain a plea agreement and gain the former intelligence analyst’s cooperation in a separate, federal case against Assange."
